Making Education a fun learning experience
Education for kids should always remain interesting and fun, but that isn’t the case all the time. Most kids seem to lose an interest in STEM education. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach, rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects. When it comes to science, technology, engineering, and math, it’s important to keep kids interested.
We must encourage our children to try their hands at STEM subjects, whether they simply want to boost creativity in daily life or begin the track to a promising STEM career. Visionary individuals, organizations, and programs are leading a world in which STEM education is crucial to success. These institutes have classes and workshops with a curriculum designed with STEM education at the forefront. With these classes, workshops, camps, and clubs, children can participate in hands-on science and technology experiments and activities. Children also learn to analyze, predict, and problem solve. At the same time, students have fun. They see and experience that science is cool. They realize that they can invent and create. Their STEM workshops integrate multiple classes to provide opportunities to see how concepts relate to life in order to hopefully spark a passion for a future career in a STEM field.
Organizations for STEM Education
Whether you are looking for an after-school program, workshop or a summer camp, we have a club/camp to meet your needs and capture the interest of your scientist. Here is a list of institutes that impart STEM education through workshops and events:
ScienceUtsav is an education program for children of age 5 to 14 years. They have an interactive learning platform for the children to learn through hands-on activities, science experiments, fun projects, science games, puzzles, science expeditions, role play and other innovative pedagogy techniques. They also organize parties that are Edutainment Parties which is a bit of Education along with Entertainment where kids enjoy with amazing hands-on activities.

Robo-G are fully dedicated to providing basic and advance knowledge of robotics to children aged between 3 to 18 years. They make use of the LEGO kits for teaching robotics, which is known as the world’s best kit for learning robotics. Using LEGO Kits they conduct many experiments of STEM i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The main aim of ROBO-G is to increase the thinking ability of children at the very young age, so they can utilize this knowledge in the future. At Robo-G, children learn to work as young scientist, engineer, and mathematician in a team. Students are encouraged to build and program a working model while making learning fun and enjoyable.
Workshops, Classes and Courses in Robotics and Lego (Lego Mindstorms, Lego Duplo, Early Simple Machines, Lego WeDo Construction, Simple and Powered Machine, MindStorm EV3)
ThinkTac offers K-12 Experiential Science Learning programmes that are align with the curriculum at schools. They aim to empower every child to engage, enjoy and innovate with science as they learn. Think Tac provides a platform for children to nurture creativity and critical thinking, and test ideas without fear and develops a growth mindset by using their brain and hands to solve problems. All ThinkTac programmes consist of a series of tactile activities termed as TACtivities™. TACtivities include making toys, experiments – both short and running a few weeks – thought experiments and computer / app-based games. The material and processes are carefully designed to encourage “making”, “tinkering” and other forms of tactile activities, and consciously create situations that force the learner to problem solve and think critically and creatively.
